Kokoda Story
Channel 7 Sunday Night Program is planning,pending no unforeseen circumstances,to air the RSL Soldiers Kokoda Story this Sunday evening (28August) at 6.30pm.Advertising for the story is currently being aired on Seven.

For those who are not aware RSL (Queensland Branch) sponsored twenty of our Diggers who had been wounded in Afghanistan - most of whom had been injured by IED Strikes - to walk the Kokoda Trail in July, including Damian Tomlinson who is a double amputee. Your State Council very generously provide an amount of $75,000 in order to make this trek possible.

The program will be hosted by Chris Bath and Rahni Sadler (who also walked the trail), the promos are quite,dramatic as promos usually are, but the story itself is slower paced and thoughtful. The producers have not taken a line on Afghanistan but just let the Soldiers and General Cosgrove have their say-which should be very moving but not political.I am advised that it is a unique picture of these guys and leaves one with a deep respect for these Soldiers.

Please disseminate this email to all Sub Branches I am sure that it will be great viewing and a fitting tribute to not only the wounded but also to those tragically killed in action.
